Daily Haiku, Charlotte Digregorio's Writer's Blog, November 2020

My thanks to Charlotte for featuring three sets from The Language of Loss: Haiku & Tanka Conversations (Sable Books 2020), winner of the 2019 International Women's Haiku Book Contest:


rainbows
spin from the crest
of a wave . . .
I wish we'd had more
time to say goodbye

    feathers
    on the empty beach
    I write his name

**

a star tortoise
carries the universe
on its back . . .
are we slowly moving
away from each other

    dark matter
    we never plan
    to be alone

**

ancient graves
sink into marshland . . .
the long bones
of our ancestors
wandering, still

    hollyhocks
    our parents grow smaller
    every year
